      A:

      Width is 86"; subtracting the 22" tube diameter gives you a 64" center-to-center measurement. So, get the 66" wide frame. The boat has a 93" flat area, so the 88" length works well.

    Q:

    When this frame is disassembled for transporting, can the clamps be left attached to side rails and the crossbars unattached from the clamps? The purpose would be to keep all dimensions of coolers and boxes the same without having to set up each time. If so, could the bolt that holds the clamp to the crossbar be replaced by a pin?

      A:

      Randy, if you want to put the frame back together quickly, take a magic marker and trace around both sides of each LoPro. Then, just loosen the U-bolts and slide them off the side rails, Slide them back on, tighten the nuts and you're good to go.

    Q:

    I have a 14 foot Saturn raft. What width and length Bighorn 2 would fit best in my boat?

      A:

      Jimmy, if you have the 14' Saturn whitewater raft, you'll want the 60" wide frame. Their website lists the flat area length as 78". We can shorten the side rails to that length. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, to place that custom order.

    Q:

    Can you break down this frame into component bars that will fit on a float plane? Or is it fixed?

      These are definitely breakdown and customizable frames. This photos in this article have the old cast LoPros and oar mounts, but they show you how a frame goes together - http://www.nrs.com/tech_talk/frameFacts.asp

    Q:

    Which cooler and dry box are recommended for the Big Horn II frame?
    Asked on 3/19/2014 by brad from Portland

      A:

      Brad, the maximum size cooler and dry box is determined by the distance between the side tubes in your raft. Measure that distance, then check out the dimensions on the individual products. We can order a custom length dry box for you if you need it. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, and we can help you dial in the best combination of frame, cooler and dry box.
